Ivory Coast vs Zambia 03.06.2022

Meanwhile, the Zambians will hope to go passed the Elephants as they did in the historical Afcon win of 2012, however, with the new man in charge who is yet to settle in, this will be a huge test yet again. The Chipolopolo side has failed to make it to the Afcon in eight years, missing three consecutive qualifications, the question is can be ready now?
